Requirements to become a foster parent

The DHS assists foster families with placement and ensures the child adjusts well to their new environment. Whether you have years of parenting experience or are relatively new to the idea, they have many support options for families. You can find plenty of information on the DHS/DFCS website or call them for more assistance.

Your local licensed child placement agency also places children in the foster system with carefully matched parents. Although foster care is temporary, it's crucial to find the right fit. That's why parents get a say in age range and gender.

There are also many state support groups for foster families that provide educational resources, services, and more. Connecting with these organizations and adding to your personal support network will be invaluable.

One of the best ways to become a better parent, whether you plan on fostering a child short-term or adopting, is to read as much as you can about Georgia's foster system. For instance, recently proposed bills would help to streamline parts of the state's foster care placement system.

You can find plenty of information available online for free as well. Blogs, podcasts, and videos are all incredibly useful ways to obtain new information about fostering.

Nothing but positive to say about Nightlight and the staff! They are dedicated to their goal of bringing families together and passionate about what they do. I love that they stay in touch even after the adoption is finalized to continue to support you and your family. Would recommend to anyone thinking about adoption in any capacity.

Not only did Nightlight do our home study, but they ended up being our placing agency during our special needs adoption. They were so kind and loving, showing God's love and grace throughout the entire process. They prayed over us and guided us and cried with us. We highly recommend choosing Nightlight. They love the people they serve.

This company has treated my whole family like a bunch of criminals. They say they offer lots of support for the mother. I requested that the baby stay with a local family but instead sent her across the country. They have been rude and careless to the whole family. They are fare from Christian. Obviously it’s all about the money for them. If you’re a pregnant mother in a bad place call all of the local churches and ask the pastor if there are any people wanting to adopt. They will recommend a good family that will love your baby as their own but won’t cost them an arm and a leg. I’m leaving this review in hopes nobody else will go through what I’ve been through. My heart is broken crying every day that my baby is so far away.
